I'm trying to install an air ride solo seat from a police Road King on a Road King, I can't seem to find any reference on installation. Can you help?

I'm sorry but I'm not familiar with the seat you are working with. If the seat is made by someone other than Harley Davidson, they may have a website at which you can get installation instructions. If they are not posted, contact the company via e-mail or telephone and ask for installation directions.

Good Luck

How to install a solo seat on a vintage harley davidson motorcycle

On most vintage bikes, the seat is supported by a "T-bar" that connects to the frame between the fuel tanks on the front end and is supported by the spring seat post in the rear. Most of the solo saddles were designed to bolt to the "T-bar". Simply remove the "buddy seat" and bolt on the solo.

Now there are some conversion kits made that eliminate the spring seat post and bolt the saddle directly to the frame. Others have coil springs in the rear. These are better if mounting a solo on a rigid frame machine.

Good Luck

How do I change my stock solo seat to a low profile solo seat on a 2006 Sportster 883C?

Buy a new seat, take the old one off and put the new one on. Seriously, if you buy a low profile seat made for an 06 883 then it should go on just like the original. If not, there should be installation instructions with the new seat that shows you where to move the hold down screw to.
The low profile seat will most likely fit exactly how your current one does.

Harley Rdkng FLHPI police seat air suspension mechanism removal.

There are two screws below the rubber stem fixed it to the frame. You can hardly see them from any angle but can reach them through the two round openings next to the stem. Use a small wrench, through the openings, to access and remove the screws, then you can remove the stem. However, keep the entire police seat assembly since you might want to put it back like what I am doing now. I tried serveral Harley and other brands seat, high or low profile, and found the police seat is the most interesting seat to ride with.

The Road King shocks are air adjustable via an air valve located on the right side of the bike just above the rear tire. Your Harley Davidson owner's manual will tell you what the shocks should be pressurized to depending upon the load on your bike (for instance - if you'll be carrying a passenger - the pressure should be a bit higher than it would be if you were riding solo). Don't even attempt to read the pressure unless you have the specialized hand pump that is used to pressurize the shocks. You can purchase this from Harley Davidson or via a third party online. The valve is a typical bicycle / auto air valve - but ... DO NOT attempt to pressurize it with anything but the specialized hand pump. Using anything else will risk over pressurization of your shocks and that's not good. The shocks hold a very small volume of air at relatively low pressure levels - so the hand pump is a must have.
